it tonight before you go to bed. the address of congress, for all the congressmen is u.s. congress, washington, d.c., 20515. that's washington, d.c., 20515. it will get there. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politics nation" starts right now. >> thanks, chris. thanks to you for tuning in. i'm live tonight from washington, d.c., where i was inside the supreme court for the arguments today. tonights lead, supreme showdown. today, the court heard the most serious challenge to the voting rights act of 1965. in the middle of this legal drama, with major constitutional questions at stake, conservative justice scalia made a statement that cut through everything else. scalia said the law represents a court perpetuation of racial entitleme entitlement. sitting in the court, those words were shocking. a supreme court justice of the united states saying the voting rights act is a perpetuation of racial entitlement. lyndon johnson signed the law in 1965 to prevent racial discrimination, to stop the taxes, literacy taxes and violence rampant across jim crowe south. nine st
it? a funny thing happened. the truth popped out. john boehner threatens the cuts to the u.s. national security, thousands of jobs and more. boehner is right. these cuts were design today be so brutal, so awful that even extremist republicans would want to avoid them. and, yet, the hill reports today that republicans have decided o the requester is where they'll make their stand on spending cuts. it's downright crazy. republicans admit the cuts will threaten national security and kill jobs. but they refuse to stop them? it makes zero sense. >>> a new economic report warns these cuts could cause 700,000 workers to lose their jobs this year alone. >>> the pentagon today passed a plan to furlough 8,000 workers if the cuts take effect. it's shameful. and the president is fighting that. today, he gave interviews to 8 different tv shows around the country, demand gd the gop stop these spending cuts, and, instead, close loopholes for the rich. >> instead of us cutting education, mental health programs and a whole range of other things that are really important, we should be focused
in the u.s. senate was 27-6. in the house, it was 136-35. four out of five republican members in both houses for civil rights. for the voting rights to follow, the republican vote in the senate was 30-2. overwhelming in all cases. i'm watching this debate over the voting rights act and i'm struck with the reality that the reason for today is the republican party. not the party of the 1960s. but the one that's backed voter suppression efforts in dozens of states and keeps on doing. every time a state passes another bill making it harder to vote, cutting down on voter days, exz e exz tending voter id requirements, you have to wonder are they doing precisely what the voter rights act was designed to stop? >> the republican party can be proud in certain regards. certainly the backing of certain men like edward durks. the question today for this young century is whether the republican party will be as proud in the future for the positions it's taking now. that's "hardball" for now. "politics nation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris. and thanks to you for tuning in i'm li
showed he would have a clear path to the u.s. senate not only in the general, but in the primary. >>> now, abbey, has the tea party become so powerful that they're scaring mainstream republicans away? >> you know, the origin of the republican party fought for equal rights. they really came together to stop the expansion of slavery. i think the history of the republican party is so fascinating. i'm so glad that we're having this conversation. and the history is something that we often forget. as you said, abraham lincoln was the first republican to come in as president. and he fought to end slavery. that was 150 years ago. if i could imagine lincoln living today, he would probably be pushing for a debate on immigration. he would be pushing for a debate on gay marriage. he would be pushing for a debate on equal rights. that's not being done as much as i would like it, as much as many republicans would like to see. unforchew natly, we're a severely divided party. but, reverend, we've been a divided party before. you remember back in 1912, when roosevelt stormed out of the convention -- >> we
soldier, was the head of the u.s.o., served on the senate floor relations committee. he is imminently qualified to be secretary of defense. and the notion that we would see an unprecedented filibuster, just about unprecedented. we've never had a secretary of defense filibustered before. there's nothing in the constitution that says that somebody should get 60 votes. the republican minority in the senate seemed to think that the rule now is that you have to have 60 votes for everything. well, that's not the rule. the rule is that you're supposed to have a majority of the hundred senators vote on most bills. the filibuster historically has been used slektively for a handful of issues to extend debate. but we don't have a 60-vote rule. and, yet, that's become kmonl practice. this is just the latest example. it's just unfortunate that this kind of politics intrudes at a time when i'm still presiding over a war in afghanistan and i need a secretary of defense who is coordinating with our allies to make sure that our troops are getting the kind of strategy and mission that they deserve. >>
. there are so many agencies on scene right now that if he chose an agency, say for example, the u.s. marshal service or the fbi and said he would lay down his guns and come out and turn himself over to them for his own safety, that would be arranged. but al, there's been well over 500 shots fired already. he's going to have to quit pulling the trigger and start talking if he wants his story to actually get out. otherwise not only does he die in vain, but all the people that he's alleged to have killed have simply died at the hands of a madman instead of someone who's trying to make in his mind a legitimate point. >> well, let me ask you to hold right there, clint. joining me now is nbc's john yang who is live in los angeles. john? >> rev, what we can tell you now is they still have christopher dorner, the san bernardino sheriff's office says they have him pinned down in a cabin in the san bernardino mountains near big bear lake. this happened around 3:20 east coast time today when the sheriff's department responded to a call of a home invasion at a cabin. they got there and we were told that
